I have dined at Mon Ami Gabi several times - all of which grabbing a drink and light food in the bar/lounge. I enjoy the French cafe atmosphere and the service is excellent. Bartenders/servers make friendly conversation, are attentive to your drinks, and readily make accommodation as far as seating requests. Great spot!

Excellent menu. Nice ambience. Staff are fast and efficient. We like that they have an inexpensive kids menu. My kids would highly recommend the Mac & Cheese:))

I came here with my wife on a date. A quite typicall French bistrot. We had good seafood and truly enjoyed the ambiance. However, it is more of a place for friends going out for dinner or lunch than a romantic date place. Nonetheless we liked it and had a good time. The design of the place is very nice.... More

As I have said in previous reviews, Bethesda is full of overpriced restaurants with below average food. Six of us went for dinner last night and had a wonderful time. We just spent two weeks in France, and Mon Ami Gabi does a wonderful job of replicating a French Bistro. Some of the dishes were good, and some just so-so.... More

I've been to this restaurant quite a few times for business lunches and dinners. I really like the food, and the ambience is very cool. It's a little slow for a quick business lunch, but if you have time for a drink and delicious food, then this is a great place to go. Service is very friendly and helpful, too.

One of my go to places in Bethesda . Great salads, wonderful onion soup and I love the fish and the chicken dishes. My husband says the steaks are great and so are the deserts!

This place is nice but I didn't like the food. My order was over cooked and after all was done the food was not worth the money. I expected an manager or a shift supervisor to come and try to make it a better experience for us but no one cared enough. Never again for me.

Went last night with the hubby for date night. We walked all around to see where we wanted to eat. We decided on this restaurant. The atmosphere is so nice and inviting. With all the twinkly lights. We sat outside and it was a beautiful night. Our waiter was VERY nice. Very low key and had a very nice way... More

It looks good and is busy on a Sunday. I guess that the menu looks attractive enough and mimicks a Parisienne bistro. That's about it. A simple modules marinniere was average but the cherry was fritters which were re cooked, oil soaked and cold and basically of the character of potato shavings. I told the waiter that I could not...
